Bringing Manufacturing Back To The U.S.: A Discussion With Thomas CEO Tony Uphoff

Manufacturing is essential to the American economy. Every 100 jobs in a manufacturing facility creates 250 jobs in other sectors. Unfortunately, however, many of these manufacturing jobs – as many as two million according to estimates — will go unfilled over the next ten years.

To combat the problem and close the skills gap, the federal government is investing in apprenticeship programs. 

Our CEO and President Tony Uphoff joined the folks at Cheddar TV to discuss how this new apprenticeship program will help reinvigorate the manufacturing industry. Tony also provided insight into what manufacturers can do to help close the skills gap and how Industry 4.0 and IoT will influence the field.
